Check the idle air control valve motor (usually mounted on top of motor and has wires connected to it). You can thump it with a handle of a screwdriver and if that doesn't temporarily make the vehicle run properly then remove it, clean it with Goo Gone (turpentine or mineral spirits solution for cleaning up gummy residue) and Qtips for your ears, both available at Walmart, and air dry the part for 10 minutes (flammables), then reassemble and try again. Also check for loose fitting air
hose between the filter box and the motor and check for possible holes or small melted thin areas on the rubber hoses between the PCV valve and the motor. These are the most likely causes of the vehicle not idling properly when you put the vehicle in gear.

Turns off after driving it for a few miles it will turn on again but once I put it in gear it will turn off again have to let it cool off till I could get it running again...


This could be a couple of different problems. You said it dies after it gets warm. Is this just like when you stop at a stop sign? And you say it starts back up but dies when you put it in gear? If you restart it and leave it in park it won't die??? Just dies if you put it in gear? I think it might be your torque converter clutch solenoid.

Dies upon stopping,start back up,dies when put in gear


try unplugging the one plug in front of trans it has 2 or 3 wires in it . its below the battery it is the lockup solinoid and they go bad and keep the trans in lockup mode and will do what your saying.

Motorhome swaying


I installed Bilsteins on my 2004 E450 based Class C and they helped reduce sway noticeably. However, the most significant improvement came after replacing the OEM sway bars with Hellwigs. The coach now rides essentially flat.
